January Transfer Window: The Players Linked To Newcastle United So Far



Newcastle United - Transfer Rumours and stories. Premier League

We are just three days away from 2023 and the opening of the January transfer window! Here are all the players linked with a move to Newcastle ahead of January 1st

Newcastle are flying high in the Premier League this season and currently sit 3rd in the table as we hit the midway point of the season.

Despite the incredible performances from his players up to now, Eddie Howe will be hoping Newcastle have added further depth to his squad come 1st February. Although, It’s unlikely that The Toon’s hierarchy will be looking to bring in players to go straight into the first eleven like they did last January.

There is a lot of uncertainty surrounding how much Newcastle will spend in January, with Financial Fair Play restrictions playing a major part in the available budget.

The Telegraph have provided an update that indicates The Magpies won’t be the biggest January spenders two years on the run. They explain that there is no pressure from the owners regarding qualifying for the Champions League this season, which suggests they may not be spend mass amounts to chase a spot in the top 4.

Enzo Fernández – Benfica

Enzo Fernández started in Argentina’s triumph over France in the World Cup Final and was awarded the Best Young Player at the tournament.

The midfielder is currently linked with the likes of Chelsea, Manchester United and Liverpool. Fabrizio Romano has reported that Fernández has a release clause worth €120,000,000.

The 21-year-old is currently one of the brightest young talents in world football, highlighted by his performances in the World Cup this winter.

Jorghino – Chelsea

The 31-year-old midfielder’s contract expires at the end of the season and would be open to to a potential move at the end of his contract. Chelsea have offered new terms but are yet to come to an agreement.

The Italian is also interested in a return to his native country, with his former side Napoli open to the move.

James Maddison – Leicester City

Another window can only mean one thing, more links to James Maddison. Newcastle have already had two bids rejected for the Leicester City playmaker back in the summer transfer window.

Toon had bids rejected worth up to £50,000,000 for the England international. The Foxes may be forced to cash in on Maddison either in January or the summer as the midfielder has just 18 months left on his contract.

Moisés Caicedo – Brighton

Yet another midfielder linked with a move to the North East. Newcastle are joined by Premier League rivals Liverpool and Manchester United with an interest in Caicedo.

Brighton reportedly value Caicedo in excess of £60,000,000 following his first-team breakthrough in the first half of this Premier League campaign.

The Telegraph are reporting that Eddie Howe is keen for a player like Caicedo to join in January due to Jonjo Shelvey’s continuous injury struggles.

Youri Tielemans – Leicester City

Like Maddison, Tielemans has been constantly linked with a move to St James’ Park. However, the Belgian’s contract expires at the end of the season.

Tielemans’ current contract could force Leicester to sell for a cut price in January to avoid the possibility of losing him for nothing in the summer.

Arsenal are also long term admirers of former Anderlecht man and are Toon’s main rivals to his signature.

Khvicha Kvaratskhelia – Napoli

Moving away from midfielders now, with Napoil winger Khvicha Kvaratskhelia. According to The Times, Napoli value the youngster at around £50,000,000.

In spite of interest from Newcastle and Manchester City, Napoli are looking to offer the Georgian a new contract which would double his current salary.

Memphis Depay – Barcelona

SPORT have reported Barcelona are ready to offer Memphis Depay to The Magpies in January.

Depay has only made just three appearances for the Spanish giants this season.

The Dutchman has also been linked with a return to Manchester United in January, with Barcelona keen to offload the forward before his contact expires in the summer.

Marcus Thuram – Borussia Mönchengladbach

Thuram is another one in a contract prediciment with his current club as his contract is due to expire in the summer and is keen to explore his options away from Borussia Mönchengladbach.

Newcastle, Inter, Juventus and Manchester United have all been accredited with an interest in Thuram, with Inter reportedly willing to offer the forward a huge €5,000,000 a year.

The 25-year-old was involved in France’s progression to the World Cup Final with a few impressive cameos off the bench, including the final.

Malo Gusto – Lyon

Mail Online understand that Newcastle have joined Manchester United in the race for Lyon full-back Malo Gusto.

Gusto, who is just 19-years-old, is one of Lyon’s biggest assets and are currently valuing him at £35,000,000.

It is thought that Gusto would be brought in to be an understudy to current first-choice right-back, Kieran Trippier.

The Players Newcastle United could/should sign from Saudi



Newcastle United Saudi Arabia transfer ban

Newcastle United has received a green light to pursue players from the Saudi Pro League after a proposed Premier League vote to restrict loan moves between clubs with shared owners fell short of the required support. This decision opens up possibilities for Newcastle to strengthen their squad in January, targeting talents from clubs linked with Saudi Arabia’s Public Investment Fund. Despite initial discussions to potentially bar such transfers, the recent vote outcome has cleared the way for Newcastle to explore signings.


See our video and reaction below and follow our YouTube for more local videos..


A recent meeting among the Premier League’s 20 clubs concluded without the necessary majority support to impose a ban on loan transfers between co-owned clubs. While 13 teams voted in favor of the prohibition, the requirement of 14 votes for approval was not met, granting Newcastle the liberty to pursue players from the Saudi Pro League.

This development particularly benefits Newcastle’s pursuit of Al Hilal midfielder Ruben Neves, whom they’ve eyed as a potential replacement for Sandro Tonali. Neves, despite significant interest from the Premier League, is expected to remain with Al Hilal during the upcoming January transfer window. The Athletic’s David Ornstein reports that despite ongoing speculation, Neves is content and settled at Al Hilal, playing a pivotal role within the team. His projected stay until the season’s end indicates his commitment to Al Hilal’s cause, especially crucial following Neymar’s injury.

Although ties between Newcastle and Al Hilal, sharing the same majority shareholder in Saudi Arabia’s Public Investment Fund (PIF), sparked concerns about potential rule changes, as of now, no alterations have been enforced. Speculation regarding a Premier League vote to block such moves in the winter market hasn’t materialized into action. Consequently, Neves looks set to continue his journey with Al Hilal, with no reported negotiations or approaches from interested parties.

Al Hilal’s impressive position atop the Saudi Pro League standings, coupled with their progress in tournaments like the AFC Champions League and the King’s Cup, further solidifies Neves’ integral role within the team. Their dominance, evident in their substantial lead over second-place Al Nassr, underscores their strength even with the latter boasting talents like Cristiano Ronaldo.

Ultimately, Newcastle’s access to the Saudi Pro League remains unimpeded, potentially paving the way for significant acquisitions in the upcoming transfer window.

Everton Get Record 10 Point Deduction!



Everton faced a significant setback as they incurred a 10-point deduction due to a breach of profit and sustainability regulations, marking the most substantial penalty in Premier League history. This plunge pushed Sean Dyche’s squad into the relegation zone, casting a shadow over their prior 14th position in the league, where they were holding an eight-point buffer from the bottom three.

This unprecedented deduction echoes only two prior instances in Premier League history. Middlesbrough faced a three-point penalty for failing to fulfill a fixture against Blackburn in 1996/97, while Portsmouth was stripped of nine points after entering administration in March 2010. Everton’s situation was referred to an Independent Commission by the Premier League in March over potential violations of profit and sustainability rules.

Amidst this, Everton voiced their intention to vigorously defend and strongly contest the charges before a hearing held last month. The specifics of the alleged breach have not been officially disclosed. However, insights from Sky Sports News suggest that the charges are linked to interest payments concerning the construction expenses for the club’s new stadium at Bramley Moore Dock.
